Beijing, Mar. 12 (ANI): One of China’s top legislators has warned of a possible “abyss of internal disorder” if the country strays from the “correct political orientation”.

China will never adopt a multi-party revolving-door system or other Western-style political models, Wu Bangguo, the chairman of the National People’s Congress (NPC) Standing Committee, said while delivering a work report.

The establishment of a socialist law system, with Chinese characteristics, institutionally and legally ensures the country stays on the right path, he told about 3,000 NPC deputies.

“On the basis of China’s conditions, we’ve made a solemn declaration that we’ll not employ a system of multiple parties holding office in rotation,” The China Daily quoted him, as saying.

He ruled out the possibility of separating executive, legislative and judicial powers, adopting a bicameral or federal system, and said privatization was not under consideration.

“Following our own path and building socialism with Chinese characteristics is … the only correct road to development and progress for our country,” Wu said.

So far, China has enacted 239 laws, over 690 administrative regulations and more than 8,600 local statutes, covering every area of economic, political, cultural, social and ecological development.

Wu also made it clear that while China wants to improve its legal system, it will “never blindly follow or imitate others”. (ANI)
